Mumbai: The unending political fight between BJP and Shiv Sena on government formation in Maharashtra does not seem to recede as Shiv Sena today asserted on quitting the Mahayuti if the Saffron party does not accept its demands.
Senior Sources in Sena party said, if such need arises, then the party shall leave NDA and explore other options of forming the government if BJP does not agree to its power-sharing demands, Indiotoday reports.
Shiv Sena has been demanding CM’s post for 2.5 years similar to BJP’s power as the party claims the two before entering the mahayuti, had agreed on a 50:50 formula power share for both the parties with rotational CM for 2.5 years each from the two parties.
However, the BJP has refuted against Sena’s claim for CM’s post and had agreed to the 50:50 formula as an equal distribution of cabinet portfolios in the government.
Speaking to India Today TV, a senior BJP leader from Maharashtra and Union minister Nitin Gadkari said the BJP had never made any promise to the Shiv Sena on the CM’s post in Maharashtra.
